Veteran of the U.S. Army, writer, day-dreamer, philosopher, cynic, realist, humanist, agnostic. I enjoy a wide variety of music, movies, literature, and, of course, cooking. I consider myself a kitchen mad scientist.
My favorite things to cook
Steak of any kind, burgers, brats, chicken, pork...I'm more of a main dish kind of guy, but I can make some mean asparagus.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am my family's cooking traditions. Self-taught.
My cooking triumphs
Not to sound cocky, but everything I've tried to make has turned out fantastic (not according to me, according to the people I've served). My favorite thing to cook is this marinated pork and apples, love making it, love eating it. Rum soaked apples taste great.
My cooking tragedies
...first attempt at making my own bbq sauce (about a week ago from 8/26/2011) and it turned out poorly...(at least in my opinion, it was probably on par with some store bought stuff but not up to my standards)
